Weeks hits 2-run HR, Brewers beat White Sox 5-4

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Rickie Weeks hit a two-run homer in the first inning and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4 Saturday in the final spring training game for both teams.

White Sox starter Dylan Axelrod came on in relief and threw 5 1-3 scoreless innings before tiring in the eighth. Axelrod, scheduled to start Friday against Seattle, was pulled after RBI doubles by Jonathan Lucroy and Sean Halton.

Logan Schafer's run-scoring single off Matt Zaleski put Milwaukee ahead.

Adam Dunn hit a solo homer in the fourth for the White Sox.

Chicago scratched out three runs, one earned, against Tom Gorzelanny in the fifth. Throwing errors put runners in scoring position for Gordon Beckham and Dewayne Wise, who each drove in a run. Brandon Short added an RBI double.
